Diane Warren Tweets Note About “True Greats” to Kanye West. WELP!
No one can love Kanye West as much as Kanye West loves Kanye West, and that is a gift. I mean, the man’s newest album is titled “Yeezus.” He clearly has high self-esteem and places himself on a giant pedestal only he can see.
Who else could go onstage looking like a giant twizzler or a used tampon and drip this much swagu because he truly doesn’t care about opinions or looking decent? Well, maybe Lady Gaga.
By now, you might have read his New York Times interview that just dropped and it’s full of quotables from ‘Ye. He waxes philosophical about life, love and his place in music history. As expected, Kanye spent a lot of the time talking about how great he is. This quote from Mr. West stands out to give you an idea:
“I think what Kanye West is going to mean is something similar to what Steve Jobs means. I am undoubtedly, you know, Steve of Internet, downtown, fashion, culture. Period. By a long jump.”
Dude compared himself to the man who revolutionized technology and the way we communicate. Chile… I want whatever Kanye’s having. He’s claiming his greatness which is admirable but is it premature? Many will argue yes. Look at this piece that basically puts it out there that Kanye has really never started a trend, and what he does is co-opt others he sees. Read it. It’s great and shadeful.
Anywho, tonight on Twitter, one of the TRUE greats of music, Diane Warren, posted a tweet that had me like OOP! Does the name not ring a bell? She’s the songwriter behind classics such as: Celine Dion’s Because You Loved Me, Aerosmith’s Don’t Want to Miss a Thing, Toni Braxton’s Unbreak My Heart and Monica’s For You I Will among countless others. Her discography is basically a list of Grammy nominated and winning awards in the past 4 decades. Diane is a REAL OG in this game.
But yeah, look at the tweet:
WELPY MCWELPINGTON OF WELPCHESTER! Diane basically told Kanye to go have all the seats. My girl Shameeka Ayers (aka The Broke Socialite) said “Chile, when you have gotten on old white folks nerves…” Pretty much. Ms. Warren said (in so many words) don’t talk about it, BE about it. Because the true great ones ain’t gotta tell us. We already know. Real Gs move in silence like gnats!
What we have here is 140 characters of treatage and slight wig snatch. I’m here for Diane.
Oh Kanye. I get it. He wants his roses NOW when he can smell them. He wants ALLA credit NOW NOW NOW but his constant affirmations of his own greatness don’t allow us to give him any credit because he already proclaimed himself the best at everything. And in my opinion, Kanye’s music hasn’t been bout that life since 808s & Heartbreak (but that’s just me. I’m sure most will disagree). He became the person he made fun of in College Dropout and Late Registration.
But I’m sure Kanye fans are somewhere like:
I know. We will.
Did you read the NYTimes article? If so, whatcha think? Also, did Diane’s tweet make your evening like it did mine? Or do you think Kanye DOES deserve to be counted as one of the greats already? Speak your peace.
